Getting There

Auburn University Montgomery (AUM) has three great trails right next to campus! There is gravel parking available near the baseball stadium. The trails are well maintained and enjoyable. The red trail is the longer of the two loop trails in the woods next to campus. The loop from the parking lot back to your car is 2 miles. The paths are wide and take you through a beautiful area. Note there are many unmarked but maintained short trails that connect the blue, red, and yellow trails. The official campus trail map is very helpful to look at before you go. You can find it at http://www.aum.edu/sites/default/files/AUM-Trails.pdf

The AUM trails are easy to get to in Montgomery! Turn into the main entrance of AUM on Taylor Road. At the round-about, turn right onto AUM drive. Follow it around the right side of campus. Go through the 2nd round about. When you get to the college's baseball field, turn left onto the gravel road there. Just before the field and the walking track, you will see a grass field to your right where people park for the trail head.

Mountain bikingGreat!

A whole lot better than I would have thought. Each trail splits off multiple times allowing you to wander for considerably more options than I’d suspected. Living in Montgomery, I’d much rather ride this than my “city loop”. Rode it on a 98 degree day in August and the shady ride very appreciated. Only gave 4 stars because I ride a gravel bike and tree roots on surface abound. Any MTB would be an easier choice.

I liked it a lot, will go back. I was mostly on red trail but because some of the markers & maps are old it was hard to tell where I was going at some points. Def recommend using the all trails app, helped a lot!

never feel like you're that far into the woods because you can always hear I-10 traffic and then on the exterior there are several homes and dwellings though one person has a really cool gate into the trail. I didn't really see any wildlife but it's a nice walk in the woods to get exercise. the trail is very wide and well-maintained the sum of the markings at intersections could be improved
